Re-domiciliation of Foreign Companies

Companies that are incorporated in certain jurisdictions outside Gibraltar may be re-domiciled in Gibraltar. A Foreign Company doing business in Gibraltar and registered under Part XII of the Companies Act, will always remain a foreign company. A re-domiciled Company under Part XIII, once it is registered in Gibraltar, becomes a Gibraltar Company. The advantage of re-domiciling a company is that there is no need to transfer its assets, as would be the case if a new company were established in Gibraltar. Transfers of assets can involve major costs.

A company may re-domicile into Gibraltar from the following countries: European Economic Area (EEA) member states, all UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies, British Commonwealth member states, Liberia, Panama, Singapore, Switzerland, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Malta and the US.
